I know it is a leap of faith and we will probably get 2 feet of snow, but living in the northwoods this is the nicest spring I can remember since 2000. Today was cool and windy but I actually planted my hops roots. If the peas get whacked no harm no foul, but with 60-70 next week you just never know.

Is everyone else enjoying this kick-A- spring. I have already got myfencing done that I did not think would be completed till late april. I am so far ahead!!!! I feel like I live in Hawaii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish we had more "global warming" it would be a lot better than the global cooling we have been having the last few years! I hate the cold so I welcome any warming at all!!! I live next to lake Michigan and it has been in the 20's and 30's the last couple of days. Glad to hear you folks inland are enjoying warmer weather b/c I know we are not, I do live 3 blocks from the lake so that lake breeze gets very cold in spring.

No, this warm Spring has NOT been good so far. My parents have said the maple sugaring season in NH was quite bad this year because the low temperatures have been way above average. The lack of snowcover has also killed late winter tourism and the spin-off industries that depend on snow sports.

I'm enjoying it! Was up north, couldn't believe the warm temps and no snow on the ground! I have a few plants peeking through ahead of schedule, so I hope we don't get that late season snow!

Sorry but I dislike the warming. This higher than average warming has caused floods and brushfire and it's not even April yet. And not to sound cheeky, but one should not live in the Midwest if you don't like the cold...

The one major problem with 80F highs in early April is another killing freeze is proably right around the corner. Those in the Northwoods know the growing season often doesn't begin until after late May.
